Sweden’s failed state-building process

03 February 2016

EFD Senior Fellow Magnus Norell is mentioned in an article of the Jerusalem Post on the recognition of the state of Palestine by the newly elected Swedish government.

"First we have migration policy. Magnus Norell, distinguished researcher on terrorism, acknowledged how Sweden has put itself in a political-legal trap. Having recognized a territory belonging to Palestine, why is Sweden still funding UNRWA? How can people continue to be classified as “refugees from Palestine” in Palestine? That is the first enigma unsolvable to the external observer."
